Space Fails Me Again

Yesterday there was a massive CME (coronal mass ejection) from the Sun that was supposed to produce some excellent aurora. I wanted to see em, since I never have, so around midnight I took my leave of Scott and Adam and started driving north. I finally gave up around 2:30am somewhere in Nebraska. I made it back home around 6:00am. Today I am very tired, and very bitter.

Now before you start telling me how stupid I am for looking for aurora when they don’t come this far south, check out this page for pictures taken in places like southeast Missouri, Georgia, Illinois, Wichita and so on. I just got unlucky, I guess.
